Reverend Dr. Banks received his formal education in the Caroline County, Virginia school system. He received his Bachelors of Arts degree from Wake Forest University in 1995, where he was a member of the varsity football team. Dr. Banks was employed in the Brunswick County, North Carolina school system when he heard the call of the Lord in 1998.
